A new series of nonfiction graphic novels is proving that comics are terrific for telling stories about science. First Second Books has announced 13 upcoming titles in their “Science Comics” book series, to be released from 2017 through 2019.

These nonfiction graphic novels combine engaging and vibrant artwork with characters who will introduce readers to a range of fascinating science topics: the history of drones, the evolution of the human brain, crows’ intelligence, and the unexpectedly compelling life of trees.

The notion of combining graphic storytelling with science subjects made sense to First Second — in a statement, they called Science Comics an “amazing mix of two nerdy things that go excellently together.” The series launched in March 2016 with two volumes: “Coral Reefs: Cities of the Ocean,” and “Dinosaurs: Fossils and Feathers,” followed by “Volcanoes: Fire and Life,” published Nov. 15, and “Bats: Learning to Fly,” which will be available Feb. 28, 2017.
